Product Description

Magewell I/O devices support Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems, and offer broad compatibility with popular encoding, live streaming, collaboration, ingest, video conferencing and virtual reality (VR) production software.

Pro Capture
Cost-effectively delivering outstanding video capture quality, performance and reliability, Magewell’s Pro Capture PCIe cards are available in single, dual and quad-channel models with a flexible choice of input interfaces – including HDMI, SDI, DVI, VGA and analog video plus audio – and resolutions up to 4K cinema and Ultra HD. FPGA-based video processing leaves the host system CPU available for third-party software. For third-party developers, the Pro Capture SDK enables partners to create custom solutions leveraging the full feature set of Magewell cards.

USB Capture Plus
Magewell’s external, plug-and-play USB Capture Plus devices are the easiest and most reliable way to bring SDI, HDMI or DVI sources into popular Windows, Mac, Linux or Chrome OS software. Voted by Streaming Media readers as 2017’s best capture hardware, the driver-free devices feature automatic input detection for exceptional simplicity and enable all types of computers including laptops to capture professional HD or 4K video with audio through a standard USB 3.0 interface.

Eco Capture
Designed for use in small and embedded systems where full-sized PCIe slots are unavailable, the Eco Capture family of high-performance video capture hardware offers OEMs and systems integrators an ultra-compact capture solution with low power consumption for space-limited applications. The first four Eco Capture models each measure just 22x80mm and feature a high-speed PCIe 2.0 bus interface with an M.2 connector, enabling multi-channel HD or single-channel 4K capture with embedded audio.

Flex I/O
The Flex I/O family of PCIe input-output cards extends Magewell’s highly-regarded capture hardware benefits to playout applications. The first two Flex I/O models each feature four input channels and two outputs, all of which can be used simultaneously with independent resolutions, frame rates and processing settings for maximum flexibility. The Flex I/O SDI 4i2o features 3Gbps SDI interfaces, while the Flex I/O HDMI 4i2o offers HDMI connectivity.
